Each year the Allegheny County Medical Society will accept nominations for our Board of Directors and Delegation.
The next window for nominations will begin:
The ACMS Board of Directors:
Serving on the board can be a huge step in your career. The time commitment is manageable at four meetings a year (one per quarter). The purpose of the board is to advise the ACMS management team on the direction of the medical society. Your insight, expertise, and support can help us make meaningful changes. You are boots on the ground. You know what issues you face daily. We need your voice and perspective in our board room.
The ACMS Delegation:
Maybe you can’t commit to four meetings per year, or you are not quite sure you are ready to serve on the Board of Directors. The Delegation is a great place to engage in social and educational opportunities with your peers from across the state. Serving as a delegate helps the Pennsylvania Medical Society team develop meaningful policy that benefits Pennsylvania physicians and patients. But the interests of Allegheny County physicians can differ from those in other counties. As a delegate you’ll participate in a few virtual meetings and then a one-day meeting in Hershey, PA – as a guest of ACMS.
